Kirk Tuck, a highly respected photographer and educator, had an interesting post on his blog today. It is related to the first major event he shot 100% using Olympus gear (E-3, E-3, 14-35 f/2 and 35-100 f/2). His comments about the format, incredible lenses, ergonomics and the sheer joy in using this system echo what I have experienced since 2006 when I started shooting the E-1 and since May of 2008 the Olympus E-3. It’s refreshing to find a photographer at the top of the game who isn’t a slave to the marketing machines and hype of the two major players – someone who has sought out the best tools for the job he has at hand.
